    1. Introduction

    1.1. DanEI-300 Overview Roll period and heel angle data, in combination with other ship's and environmental data, are essential for understanding the motion of the ship and its cargo, and in determining motion cues available to the crew.

    Electronic inclinometers are intended to support the decision-making process of the master on board in order to avoid dangerous situations as well as Maritime Casualty Investigation by providing information about the roll period and the heel angle of the ship.

    The DANEI-300 Electronic Inclinometer is fully compliant with the international standards for electronic inclinometer and other relevant standards.

    1.2. System Composition The standard configuration of DanEI-300 Electronic Inclinometer comprises of a Sensor Unit and a Display Unit. Figure 1 shows the standard configuration of the DanEI-300.

    Figure 1: Standard Configuration

    1.2.1. Sensor Unit

    The Sensor Unit measures heel angle and pitch angle in real time. It delivers the data to the Display Unit.

    Based on the state-of-the-art technology of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), the Sensor Unit embeds a high-accuracy, six-degrees-of-freedom MEMS sensor (3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope) as motion sensing element.

  • DanEI-300 Electronic Inclinometer Daniamant Electronics

    DanEI-300 UM1 v1.6 2

    The heel angle and pitch angle data is calculated by an advanced sensor fusion and motion processing algorithm using the raw data from both the accelerometer and gyroscope. This enables reliable estimation of the ships attitude in the presence of various linear and rotational movements, and thus ensures the accuracy of measurement under any possible situation that the ship may encounter.

    1.2.2. Display Unit

    The Display Unit receives instantaneous attitude and motion data from the Sensor Unit, and derives the roll period and amplitude statistics. It provides the following indications:

    Instantaneous heel angle

    Roll period

    Roll amplitude to port and starboard

    Pitch angle

    Heel Angle Warning function is also provided and can be enabled or disabled by the user. The warning will be activated as soon as the heel angle exceeds the user-preset value.

    1.2.3. Multiple Displays

    Besides the standard configuration of one Sensor Unit and one Display Unit, the system also supports multiple displays by using additional Display Units and IEC 61162-450 digital interface, as shown in Figure 2.

    2. Operating Instructions

    2.1. Switching ON/OFF The DanEI-300 Electronic Inclinometer has a power switch on the back side of the Display Unit. By turning on the switch, both the Display Unit and the Sensor Unit will be powered on.

    To shut down the inclinometer, turn the switch to OFF position.

    The international regulations require that the heel angle data shall be measured and recorded. This electronic inclinometer shall be kept running whenever the vessel is underway.

    It is also highly recommended to keep it running all the time, even when the vessel is docking or berthing.

    2.2. Operation Panel Figure 3 shows the operation panel on the Display Unit of DanEI-300.

    Figure 3: Operation Panel

    The Display Unit is equipped with a color LCD screen (800480 pixels) to display the graphical user interface. Four keys ( MENU/ENTER , , and ALARM/ACK. ) are provided for the user to operate the Display Unit. A buzzer is also available at the lower right corner of the operation panel.

    The keys on the operation panel are illuminated and this makes the inclinometer very convenient to operate even at night. The brightness of the screen and the key illumination can be adjusted by the user in order to ensure the readability under all ambient light conditions and not to impair night vision.

    The following readings are available on the main screen:

    2.3.1. Heel Angle

    Instantaneous heel angle is displayed in two different forms:

    Numeric display

    Heel angle is indicated by the numeric display at the center of the screen and is refreshed every 0.1 second. The digital indication has a range from 90 degrees port to 90 degrees starboard with a resolution of 0.1 degree.

    Analog display

    Heel angle is indicated by the pointer on the gauge and is refreshed every 0.1 second. The heel angle scale has a range from 45 degrees port to 45 degrees starboard and is numbered every 10 degrees. Division marks are displayed every 1 degree.

    When heel angle exceeds the analog display range (45 degrees port to 45 degrees starboard) under highly extreme situations, the pointer will stay at the end of the heel angle scale and therefore does NOT indicate the actual heel angle value.

    Please refer to the digital reading instead of analog reading for heel angle greater than 45 degrees.

    2.3.2. Roll Period

    Numeric display for roll period is located on the upper right corner of the screen with a resolution of 0.1 second. The value of roll period is determined by the time interval between the maximum values of the rolling oscillation and is updated twice during each period of rolling oscillation.

    Figure 5 illustrates the determination and update of roll period.

    2.3.3. Roll Amplitude

    Numeric displays for roll amplitude to port and starboard are located respectively on the left and right side of the screen with a resolution of 0.1 degree. The roll amplitude value to port/starboard is updated immediately if heel angle exceeds the previously determined roll amplitude value to port/starboard, or else, is updated as soon as the roll amplitude value of the new oscillation period is determined.

    Figure 6 illustrates the determination and update of roll amplitude.

    Figure 6: Determination and Update of Roll Amplitude

    Besides the numeric display, roll amplitude values are also indicated by the red (port) and green (starboard) dashed lines on the gauge.

    The analog display range of heel angle also applies to the analog display of roll amplitude.

    Please refer to the digital reading instead of analog reading for roll amplitude greater than 45 degrees.

    2.3.4. Pitch Angle

    Numeric display for pitch angle is located on the upper left corner of the screen with a resolution of 0.1 degree.

    The value is refreshed every 0.1 second.

    3.6.1. Alignment Error Correction

    Alignment error may be produced during the installation of the sensor unit and will add a constant offset to the heel angle and pitch angle measurements. The alignment error can be corrected by setting the correction values in the service menu, which shall be the opposites of the heel angle and pitch angle readings when the ships actual heel angle and pitch angle are both zero.

    Example: the ships actual heel angle and pitch angle are both zero, the inclinometer reading is: heel angle -0.2 degree (port) and pitch angle +0.1 degree (bow up). The correction values shall be: +0.2 degree for heel angle and -0.1 degree for pitch angle.

    3.6.2. Digital Interface Options

    The following digital interfaces are supported:

    IEC 61162-1 (4800 bps) or IEC 61162-2 (38400 bps), exclusively;

    Ethernet interface (incl. IEC 61162-450 and other protocol).
